The sun rises over the desert at the Wild Horse Pass Resort... just gorgeous! I love the colors and peace of the desert... but not the heat! It REALLY feels good to be home with cool mornings and just warm enough afternoons. I'm so thankful to live where I do!
This was the last Creative Escape - sad to say goodbye to such a special event and especially to say goodbye to one more place to see friends and be inspired by great teachers!
Rebecca Cross, who owns Pink Paislee, got to play like I did... just fun to sit back and enjoy! I'm so grateful to her for so generously sponsoring my upcoming classes in South Africa!!
I loved making the album in Ali Edward's class... I need to enlarge pictures more. The visual impact is fabulous!
It was fun to play with Kristen and Julie from Whim So Doodle! I had my new class samples with me, so they got a look at them... we are all excited about my weekend at the "Doodle" at the end of October where these classes will make their debut!
My favorite project was the album cover we did in Amy Totty's class. Loved ruching the fabric onto the front of a chipboard album!
I can't believe I'm posting this picture but it's evidence of the fun that Cindy and Jennifer and I had on our adventures (even at JCrew... who looks good in this hat anyway?!!) We did a whole lot of laughing!
I almost deleted this picture because it's not in focus and not perfectly posed but I love it because it captures a moment of joy... good friends, lots of laughter and fun! (Margie, Ali, and Vicki in the background.)
On Sunday it was time for me to "work" and I was off to Scrap Happy Sisters to teach two classes before heading home that night. It was great to meet everyone there! We had so much fun that I'm going to be returning with my three new classes the first weekend in December!
Another great scrapbook store that is doing things right!! Thanks Kit and Kris!
Yesterday I spend a "happy" 3 hours in Driver Improvement class from a speeding ticket that I got back in June. I'm sure they make it extra boring as a deterent! Now I need to get the new class info sent to all the stores and start packing for South Africa... one week from today I'll be on my way!!!
